Ear-splitting screams of celebration rang out through the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex Saturday night as Xtra Hype claimed first prize in the Community Dance Festival competition for the third time.
Its winning choreography Zombies had many electrifying moments, but what sent the crowd wild was when the team assembled to resemble a fire-breathing dragon.
Second prize was taken by Praise Academy of Dance (New Era) for its choreographed piece Invasion.
The dance depicted an epic battle between good and evil, where the spirits of the righteous triumph over those of the damned.
In an unexpected turn of events, NGU and BlueTooth Breakers, with their choreographed pieces Child Abuse and Aliens respectively, tied for third place.
The juniors were not to be outshone by the adults, however, as Praise Academy Of Dance juniors (Promise) took home the first prize with their upbeat choreographed piece Walk Holy, while St George’s Primary and OLOS took home second and third place prizes with Who is Dat Chick and Bad Decision, respectively.
Dance Fest 2012 with its varied performances was a contest to be remembered. (SM)
